See you all this Saturday for the Non-Surgical Symposium in Sydney where I will be presenting exciting new technology that uses artificial intelligence for instant and accurate facial photography. It’ll be a game changer in the medical and cosmetic scene and I cannot wait to share this hard work with you all.
Breaking news! 🔊🔉 It’s just been announced by the Gold Coast Government that a brand new clinic will be opening for women affected with pain following pelvic mesh insertion.
The pelvic mesh was used to manage pelvic weakness, sometimes as a result of child birth. It has been under the watchful eye of many following claims of pain after insertion which has led to a state enquiry and a class action with an eventual ban. $3 million a year will be injected into a new clinic at the Gold Coast University Hospital with an integrative care approach consisting of specialist doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, social workers and psychologists.
The clinic is expected to open mid next year and will serve the state.
This is extremely exciting news for women who have been suffering pelvic pain following mesh surgery.
If you or a loved one is affected or wish for more information please pop by and see me in clinic.
Volunteering.. it’s free, it’s fun and it’s fulfilling!
One of the proudest moments I’ve had this year was when I was a volunteer doctor for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. It allowed me to meet new people and engage with different cultures as well as provide a beneficial service.
We’re so lucky, in Queensland there are some great initiatives out there that are desperately in need of volunteers. From being a Bunnings BBQ volunteer, to Christmas gift wrapper for the Leukaemia Foundation, to volunteering for the Cerebral Palsy League’s upcoming show, there’s plenty out there!
Whether it’s an hour of your time, or a weekend, by volunteering you get the opportunity to socialise with new people as well as lending a helping hand. All of which feel very satisfactory and leave a positive impact on mental health.
If you have any concerns or would like to find out more please pop by and see me in clinic.
Anxiety, depression, substance misuse and eating disorders are just some of the common mental health problems that affect many of us. In fact over half the population will experience a mental disorder at some point in their lives.
Don’t suffer alone. There’s a wealth of help out there, from psychological therapies, support groups, coaching groups, medication and so much more.
If you are concerned about yourself or a friend please seek medical help and pop by and see me in clinic.
